With the speed and grace of a gazelle, Leah Wittman is possibly the fastest woman to run the 100 metres, and a certain contender for the Olympic Gold. But this is Germany in 1936 and Leah is a German Jew. This tense thriller and moving romance is set against a convincing backdrop of Nazi propaganda and an all-pervading sense of fear.
